Zero Latency has partnered with HTC to bring the next generation of immersive virtual reality entertainment to gamers at Icon Park in Orlando, Fla., minus the backpacks and wires for a distraction-free experience.
Up to eight players can band together with greater freedom of movement thanks to 6E wireless technology that seamlessly streams 5K VR to each player simultaneously, and HTC VIVE Focus 3 headsets, which offer up to 16 times greater performance than traditional headsets. For techies, that means 5K visual fidelity with a 90Hz refresh rate and a 120-degree field of view.
“The new Zero Latency platform offers the closest experience yet to simply stepping inside another world,” said Tim Ruse, chief executive officer at Zero Latency. “We intentionally provide effortlessly immersive experiences that we think people will enjoy, and we can’t wait to share that with more customers around the world. By removing equipment, like backpacks, we’re actually able to provide a heightened player experience to our customers in the United States and across the world. Our existing titles feel better than ever, and we can’t wait to blow people away with what we have coming next.”
The company’s library of game titles without wires includes Ubisoft-exclusive “Far Cry VR,” “Sol Raiders,” “Undead Arena,” “Singularity,” “Outbreak Origins,” “Engineerium,” and “Zombie Survival.”
“Our customers often tell us Zero Latency is the best VR experience they’ve ever had,” said Scott Vandonkelaar, chief technology officer at Zero Latency. “Delivering experiences as deep and interactive as ours has never been possible with an all-in-one headset, so we built our own solution. Remote rendering and 6E wireless streaming means we can deliver our experiences at previously impossible performance levels, with less technology and fewer player distractions than ever. We’re thrilled by the results and can’t wait for customers to experience it for themselves.”
Zero Latency will open its first outlet at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nev., with additional outlets to follow in Seattle, Wash., Houston and Dallas, Texas, Orlando, Fla., and Cincinnati, Ohio.
